We always use redwood sourced from sustainably managed forests who are FSC or PEFC certified. We also plant 1 tree for every £50 spent with us. For our redwood shelves, this equates to planting on average 40 trees for every 1 used.
CRACKS & MOVEMENT
Our rustic redwood shelves are handcrafted from the finest quality kiln dried Scandinavian Redwood ensuring stability in your home. With our rustic shelves you can sometimes expect very minor cracks and knots and few saw marks, only very minor cupping is acceptable. Although each piece is unique it is much more consistent that our oak fireplace beam range. Placing shelves near a heat source may cause movement.
OTHER DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS
Redwood is a natural product, therefore knots, colour, grain pattern and other distinguishing features can vary. Each shelf is completely unique!
We work to a tolerance of +/- 5mm. If you need a length smaller than a standard size, please order the next length up and leave a note in checkout to cut it down. Please note, this will make the item non-returnable. Need something more bespoke? Get in touch for a quote.
Our solid wall concealed fixings have the capacity to hold up to 35kg of weight between 2 fixings. This includes the weight of the shelf. Longer lengths come with more fixings. Our concealed plasterboard fixings are suitable for plasterboard between 9-15mm thick - 2 fixings (2 T brackets and 4 Gripit fixings) can hold up to 20kg of weight including the weight of the shelf. Our rustic metal brackets can hold approximately up to 30kg between 2 brackets including the weight of the shelf. This is a guide only - condition of the wall, shelf placement, weight distribution and shelf depth all affect the weight capacity.
Please note none of the above can be treated as defects.
